Contractors are being sought to build the first stage of the M6 Project, an underground motorway from Arncliffe to Kogarah in Sydney.
Around 5300 jobs are expected to be created throughout the life of the project, which aims to fill one of the missing links in Sydney’s motorway network.
The M6 project, previously known as the F6 Extension, includes four kilometre twin tunnels between the new M5 Motorway at Arncliffe and President Avenue at Kogarah.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the M6 Stage one would make journeys easier and safer by avoiding roads such as President Avenue and The Grand Parade, and save motorists up to 15 minutes in traffic.
“Once complete, the new M6 will provide significant time travel savings for Sydney’s south and the Illawarra. More than 2,000 trucks a day will be removed from local streets and 23 sets of traffic lights bypassed,” Berejiklian said.
It is expected that a contract will be awarded in December 2020, construction will begin by early 2022 and open to motorists by the end of 2025.
